Los Angeles, CA – The currently incarcerated Suge Knight has reportedly signed over the rights to his life story. According to TMZ, the former Death Row Records CEO handed the responsibility to Ray J, who’s been a friend of his for decades.
Knight hopes the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star will be able to make some money for Knight and his family by properly capitalizing off his life story. He reportedly trusts Ray J will make the right decisions regarding business, which may include film, television and book publications.
Sources say a documentary on Knight and Death Row is in the works in addition to a project about the late Tupac Shakur. There has allegedly been discussions of reviving the famous imprint as well, but that venture would require extra investors and is being called a “long shot.”
In September 2018, Knight struck a 28-year plea deal in his murder case but got credit for time served. With prison overcrowding, it’s possible he could do just over 10 years.
